Lots of Layers and/or Colors for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards. Use lots of layers and/ or colors from the inspiration image...

Here's my card...

As you can see, I've used the colors and the brick wall from the image as my inspiration.  Can you guess how many layers there are in the card?  Let's see...
Card base, dimensionals (3), brick wall, tree blossom (2 ~ 1 behind the trunk), tree trunk, pearls, doves.  SO... there are 10 layers!  7 if you don't count the dimensionals.  Yep, I think I hit the brief!  Grin.

Card: Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and scraps of Shimmery White
Ink: Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write marker (cement and eyes), Flirty Flamingo and Early Espresso
Stamp sets: Thoughtful Branches
Tools and embellishments: Thoughtful Branches Thinlits and Brick Wall TIEF
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals and Tombow
